I know it is a problem, to do the show in only one language, but it is also
a problem to find a technical solution and manpower to broadcast in english
and german. So, at the moment the only english part sre the Space News with
John Locker, but we hope to get more material from your country. If we
receive a video containing interesting material (this could be the own
receiving equipment, some funny reception constructions, out of band
reception and so on) we will show it in the original language. drdish@tv
lives from the participation of the viewers.
DFS-II is received by our english viewers with 100cm-dishes, but the signal
is weak in the western and northern parts of the country.
Try the next show: october 10, 1997 from 18:00 until 20:00 (UTC). Again via
DFS-II (11.550 v, 6.65)
